CT 34

Pneumatic Crimping Machine


The CT 34 Pneumatic Crimping Machine is designed for loose-piece crimping applications. Its parallel crimping action delivers up to 20 kN (2.5 tons) of force for open and closed barrel applications including wire end ferrules and machined contacts. The quality of the crimp is guaranteed by a full-cycle mechanism that assures that the dies have closed completely before they are reopened. The ergonomic 15-degree tilt of the machine provides an optimal viewing angle and the LED light enhances visibility of the crimping area.

The quick-change die adapter system allows for fast changeover times and lets users prepare for upcoming jobs by using additional (optional) die adapters. The CT 34 is very simple to set up and operate. A wide range of crimping dies can be used by choosing the corresponding die adapter.
